Now I know I’m getting back into the swing of things: this morning I printed out the syllabus for my four classes. Fortunately, they are all on file so all I have to do is pull them up and tweak them a bit for this new year. Word processing, which I’ve not taught in two years, is now called computer skills, so that one took a little more massaging. Our principal requires two copies of each syllabus by the time school starts. I can get these copied Monday and Tuesday while I am doing other sundry preparations to get back into the school year.
Monday and Tuesday are freshmen orientation days. We call them Link Crew with the older kids showing the newbies around the campus and giving them (hopefully) good tips. I will need to be set up in the cafeteria to push my yearbook sales when the kids pick up their schedules. Hopefully they will show up with their checks and prefilled order blanks that were included in their back-to-school packets which were mailed home.
I can feel the pace quickening!
